Veterans Day Thank You Card Writing Campaign

Midway Partnership in collaboration with the Midway USO will hold a Veterans Day Thank You Card Writing Campaign for men and women who serve, or have served in the country’s armed forces.

Cards filled out by passengers or employees can be dropped at any of the distribution locations or at the airline gates while waiting for flights. All the thank you cards collected will be put into USO care packages and delivered to service members overseas.
